Research into the level of need and current support provided to black and minority ethnic pupils with Welsh language support needs.

The study explored current processes around identifying, black and minority ethnic pupils with WAL support needs, assessing their attainment levels, and monitoring their progress. It also looked at the provision in place across Wales to support WAL pupils in their acquisition of Welsh and access to the curriculum. The study identified examples of effective practice and gaps in current services provided to WAL pupils.

This research project, which was funded by European Structural Funds, was conducted between April 2013 and February 2014.
